Reliability, agreement, and validity of digital weighing scale with MatScan in limb load measurement

Senthil Kumar N. S., M.Sc, et al.

This research focused on the measurement of uneven loading on human legs. The aim of research was to report on the trustworthiness of two digital weighing scales in measuring uneven load distribution in the legs. The findings supported an effective and economical procedure using digital weighing scales to measure the loading of the legs when compared with expensive equipment such as MatScan. This research provides knowledge for clinicians, surgeons, and any ordinary people on measurement of uneven loading on legs, which could help in early detection and prevention of problems related to uneven loading on legs.
